We used to rent on Murray St so we walked past the Flying Duck Hotel very frequently...but never paid a visit...but tonight we decided to come here for the Parma Night and we found the food to be spectacular!!! The chicken Parma is thick, moist and very tender, the cheese on top is not the same cheese as what you get at other pubs...the atmosphere is superb and modern, this place is an awesome gem in this Prahran hood....highly recommended!! Will definitely come back!

I recently tried beer tartare for the first time and it was an interesting experience. The flavors were unique and surprisingly enjoyable.
Ordered the Monday night steak special. The steak itself was cooked well, although it was a bit crispy on the outside. Overall, it was a decent dish again.

ORDERED:
?? Lightly battered fish and chips: with chunky tartare sauce & salad ($27.00)

I paid $27.32 which included a card surcharge.

REVIEW:
? The fish and chips didn't do it for me.
The fish tasted pungent/fishy which was on the side of unpleasant. We came for lunch, and appeared to be their first customers of the day. Unsure if this affected the quality of the fish. ?
Secondly, the light batter was very moist. It looked promisingly crunchy but was very soggy. Nothing hits me harder than the wrecking ball of disappointment.
The accompanying salad was unwieldy. It featured some sprigs of herbs still on the stem and some thickly cut vegetables. The flavours were alright, but instead of leaving the stems I'd rather the Flying Duck Hotel leave me with a completely edible salad. ?

One cannot help but wonder if $27 for fish and chips at this quality is too much.

??"?? Regardless, the atmosphere and the service was fantastic. They renovated this place, and it feels very classy and lovely. There's a strong sense of earthiness from the green tones from the booths and the invitingly warm brown tones from the exposed brick and dark brown timber. Overall, it's a gorgeous establishment. ??'"
??"?? Staff are incredibly friendly as well.
They were generously willing to pile us up with complimentary aioli and tomato sauce.

I can imagine myself having a fun, relaxed time at Flying Duck but with another dish to eat.

Looks like your typical neighbourhood pub from the outside but surprisingly well maintained interior with big outdoor/atrium (with roof cover on most areas). The food was pretty good. The fish and chips were flaky, quite moist and decent serving. The sauce on the raw fish is refreshing and a little spicy. Service is friendly and quick.

Love a good outdoor courtyard to soak up the sunshine while sipping on wine and eating tasty food. We ordered fish and chips and chicken Parma - both dishes were pretty good. Great vibe ??'?

First time to come here .. They have a huge outdoor area as well as indoor. On Monday they have whole day steak night for $25 . We decided to come here for late lunch .. we've ordered the pork terrine for the starter and that was super tasty! I would definitely come back here :)

Came back for the second time with few friends .. They all happy :)

Excellent food, lovely service and a fabulous fit out! So nice to see smiling staff these days, backed with lovely food great food and wine. We sat in dining room which was perfect to debrief on the day but if you want to bring your dog to the front bar- seemingly you can! Love it. Very approachable menu.

Went here for steak night yesterday. Service was perfect, the waiter's French accent even made it feel more fancy! Our food took a while to come out - over 40 mins wait - but this was the only downside as it was delicious.

We ordered medium rare and it came out that way; the beef was tender with very thin crispy char crust. I had bearnaise sauce but my partner had the peppercorn sauce, peppercorn is the way to go!

Served with shoestring fries and slaw. I'm not a huge fan of slaw, if it had a garden salad option would have been perfect for me.

I would have put 4 stars due to the wait but it was worth it for a steak this enjoyable so here are 5 stars.

So so loud in that atrium. There is no where for the sound to escape so its a disaster. We were there for a bday so didn't want to sit anywhere else, but we couldn't even hear each other so it was pointless and ended up eating and just leaving. Staff were attentive behind the counter. Pub style - get your own cutlery - type of service. Chicken Parma came out cold l, but we were too hungry to let them know in time for them to fix it. I loved my salad, It was delicious.

Admittedly it's New Year's Eve. But it's not at all busy and, given the neighbourhood, you'd think it would be.

Why isn't it busier?

I think word of mouth means the new Flying Duck will struggle to attract customers. Service tonight was at times rude (our French waitress made us feel we were an inconvenience) and inattentive the rest of the time.

Starters were absolutely delicious. But main courses are not good enough to warrant a second visit.

The menu is very reasonably priced if you like your food cheap and plentiful.

The wine list is excellent and well priced and the fit out is really top notch.

Fix the service and do better food (even at a higher price point) and I'll be back. Until then, I won't be returning - there are many better places to go to in Melbourne.

Special thanks to Kevin, whose attentiveness and professionalism was a highlight of our dining experience at the Flying Duck Hotel.

The food was exceptional, the best barramundi I've had in a long time. We went on a busy Friday night but this did not fault their high standard of service. Fun time had - will definitely be back!

I've been twice for lunch and once for dinner since the glow up and it is great. I've eaten indoors and outside. Staff are fab! Special mention to Monsieur Kevin and the wonderful Chloe. Food excellent ar affordable prices. Good affordable champagne and good old Turkey Flat Rosie! Well done.

The vegetarian option are some of the most creative and delicious options I've come across in a pub. Not just an afterthought. On the other hand my husband said the steak he had was one of the best he's ever eaten. Staff are super friendly and we felt completely welcome with small children. An absolute gem!

Great to see the Duck back open with a refreshed look and larger dinning room. Small but good menu and a good drinks list. Local favourite.

Love this venue! The new renovations have made this venue the number one spot for summer. The glasshouse out the back is beautiful and the service and food is fantastic.

Wow. Very impressed with the revamp.
The food was absolutely incredible. We had the cauliflower, chicken tenders, flat bread and for mains, burger, steak and Parma.
The kids meals were also good sizes and came out quickly.
The service was also fantastic. We will definitely be back.

Great staff, great atmosphere, one of the last few down to earth pubs in the area. I just really wish they would allow well-behaved dogs in the outdoor areas. I live locally and would love to bring my dog!

Never judge a pub by what you see from the street......this place has a vibe from a steak that was Cooked to absolute perfection and the price didn't offend at all.......the staff and the crowd were what made this hidden little gem really......how to say....... POP...it had its own vibe......staff need a round of beers as they made me want to return 110%

Very good vibe and friendly staff. However the food was average. I was expecting a better food taste which was not the case in my visit.

Very nice place great vibes and a good menu, the Angus burger I ordered was excellent! The wife had a chicken schnitzel which also was nicely done. Good wine menu and restrained decent cocktail menu as well . would go back again is the chance arose.

The service here was good. Staff were friendly and patient with our large group. Most of the food came out at the same time considering we had a large group which was great. Serving size was quite large however the food was mediocre. We had the lamb which fell right off the bone but lacked in taste. The salad that came with the lamb was much better than the lamb.
